Focus and Time Management -
What Neuroscience Tells Us About Improving These Critical Skills
Every time you focus your attention you are using glucose and other metabolic resources. Studies by Professor of Psychology at Florida State University Roy Baumeister and his colleagues show that each task that you perform tends to make you less effective at the next task. Whether we are at home, in the workplace, or elsewhere, we are constantly fighting off distractions and battling conflicting priorities. This session focuses on practical tips for avoiding and suppressing distractions, on a 4-step focused-attention-meditation, which will help you sustain attentional focus, and on other neuroscience-based practices to increase your ability to focus and manage your priorities, energy, and time best.
